11 Oldways and the Whole Grains Council 11 of 41 Reasons for WG Health Benefits Nutrients Whole grains have 3-5 times the vitamins and minerals found in refined grains. Antioxidants Corn has almost twice the antioxidant activity of apples, while wheat and oats almost equal broccoli and spinach in antioxidant activity. Fiber Whole grain products offer 1g to 4g of fiber per serving. Fiber varies from 3.5% in brown rice to around 17% in barley. Long-lasting energy When you feel full longer, youre less likely to rush to the vending machine for junk food.

12 Oldways and the Whole Grains Council 12 of Dietary Guidelines for Americans Recommends… Consume 3 or more ounce-equivalents of whole-grain products per day, with the rest of the recommended grains coming from enriched or whole-grain products. In general, at least half the grains should come from whole grains.

13 Oldways and the Whole Grains Council 13 of 41 What is a Whole Grain?

14 Oldways and the Whole Grains Council 14 of 41 A Whole Grain Includes Everything Whole grains or foods made from them contain all three essential parts and all the naturally-occurring nutrients of the entire grain seed. If the grain has been processed (e.g., cracked, crushed, rolled, extruded, lightly pearled and/or cooked), the food product should deliver approximately the same rich balance of nutrients that are found in the original grain seed.
